All over the world, people are turning to designers to address intractable problems from poverty to climate change. Francis Kéré seeks to do just this, using a mix of low-tech and high design and working in partnership with the communities for whom he builds. This film documents several projects Kéré has built or begun in the past 15 years, and shows the architect in action between his native Burkina Faso and Germany, where he is attempting to build a community performance center for Syrian refugees.
The Architecture & Design Film Festival: D.C. is presented by the National Building Museum with the Revada Foundation.
